yeah man, the only difference on E36's are between OBD1 and OBD2. OBD1 cars have a Y pipe that goes 2-1 then back to 2. and OBD2 cars and duals all the way back.

But now you're actually gonna have to care about your exhaust. Are you getting it from the guy on craigslist? I want his alternator. Maybe we can go together and get a package deal.

PS, it's X5 season. Dad is looking at an 02 3.0 with CWP and Premium and 52,000 miles (!!!). Exterior looks like the E36 Arktisgrau over black interior. Hoping to get him to buy it, then I'll have converted another household to exclusively BMW when their VW lease is up.

There's a sweet low mileage X5 4.8is in Santa Cruz for <20k. If it were me I'd get that. The 3.0 is a good engine, but you'll have a better experience with the V8.

The first $23 worth I ordered came with jelly beans. I did several more orders of $150-$300 and got another tin of jelly beans plus a discount certificate each time, and a toolbox magnet!

Departing this Friday @ 5:30am to Grand Cayman for a holiday weekend getaway. First real vacation since last May. http://www.thereef.com/en/index.html. Of course, I skip the all inclusive part, finding the rundown local place to dive and eat is half the fun

Yipee!







PS...Ken, glad you escaped from Deerpalooza unscathed!

I like it, but it looks a little too bold for my dads tastes methinks. He's not going to pay extra for the performance.

We did, however, find an 05 4.4 loaded to the hilt for 16k with 80k on it. Everything, nav, PDC, CWP, sport pkg, comfort seats, all that jazz. He's gonna check em both out. 05 has the N62 so he likes the idea of more power with more gas mileage.

I just remembered that I have an account on car domain and hadn't logged in in quite a long time... If you're ever interested in losing faith in the entire automotive community just go there and view the "rides" on the front page.

Fixed.

If you want to do that, do it somewhere that there's no chance of involving anyone else in your eventual mistake, and he WILL eventually make a mistake. He's going to kill someone. Maybe himself, maybe innocent bystanders, but it's coming. And that M5 will be toast (if it isn't already).

Cliffs Notes version: DON'T DRIFT IN TRAFFIC.

^^^^THIS^^^^^

That has got to be one of the most mammothly a$$inine things I have ever seen someone do, let alone video. It's one thing to go out on a completely deserted road and have some fun. The risk choices are all yours as are the consequences. To do it in a densely populated high traffic density area took the choice away from all of the cars and pedestrians shown in the video.
Sorry CJ but can't see the cool in this under any circumstances.

I like this

Go for the n62 if he has deep pockets and doesn't want to DIY. If you will be doing the work on it for him, I would suggest the M54 or M62. I love the M62, and i'm just getting acquainted with it. I have done quite a bit of work on our X, and I am diggin on the V8 power I would tell your dad to talk to the PO about the CCV on both cars since they seem to fail in conditions of high humidity and low temp.

BTW Arktisgras over black was my dream color combo

Sounds like old people talking here.

Yes it's stupid and we all know it, no one is condoning it but it's still cool to watch.


I agree with the deserted part. I only do that kind of stuff where the worst case scenario is tearing up my car. I don't do it to where I could hurt myself(in regards to sliding).

He's a talented driver for sure. But I gotta agree that he's a asshat for doing that in crowded roads with traffic. Where is local LE though??

this. it is insanely irresponsible and stupid, however cars going sideways and making I6 noises are always nice. My mom doesn't drive and on nights when she works late and my dad can't get her I pick her up. our town has a rotary in the middle and around 11pm is completely deserted,and if you leave a deserted rotary without going the least bit sideways, i challange you as a man.
